The family of a teenage boy from York who died in a car crash near Brimham Rocks have paid tribute to him.
At around 6.50pm on Tuesday, September 12, a grey Peugeot 107 crashed into a wall. There, 17-year-old Alfie Lovett died at the scene with the other occupants left with minor injuries.
His heartbroken family have now paid tribute to him in a statement. They said: “Alfie was a unique personality who loved to make people laugh and lived for adrenaline fuelled adventures.
“He lived his life fearlessly and marched to the beat of his own drum without caring about what anyone thought of him.
“Alfie had his own world view that very few understood. He was only 17, but has made a huge mark in his short time and anyone who’s ever met him is not likely to ever forget him!
“Alfie was a fiercely loyal friend, a protective big brother to his two younger sisters and brother and loving father to his infant son. Taken from us far too soon with so much more to give, he’ll be very missed every day.”
